Following mediation, sexual assault claims against Allegheny College were settled last month in a Pennsylvania court. The lawsuit was filed by a female former Allegheny football player who alleged Title IX violations, as well as negligence and emotional, physical, and mental distress, after she received unwanted sexual advances during practice by another player. According the lawsuit, previous misconduct incidents by the perpetrating teammate were made known to faculty. The plaintiff also claimed she experienced gender discrimination, as she was not given access to a locker room, nor was she assigned a jersey number.
